I am planning a meeting for about 28 people in Amsterdam at the beginning of September. We'd like to do at least one dinner off-site, and having never been to the city, I need help!
We're staying at the Hotel Arena (www.hotelarena.nl), which is near Oosterpark and so not particularly central. In an ideal world, I'd love somewhere we could walk to, but it's not necessary, since it doesn't seem like there's a ton around there.
The hotel restaurant serves Dutch food, so something non-Dutch would be great. Our group includes some fairly high-level people, but my organization is an NGO so our budget is fairly tight - so I'm looking at something mid-range.
Any suggestions at all? Obviously it needs to be somewhere I can make reservations, but I don't mind if we have a private room or anything.
